									               Employee Training Needs Assessment for EHS-Related Topics
                                                           (Revised 11/09)
 This table includes minimal formal training requirements mandated by applicable regulation. Additional training topics may be
 appropriate based on unique department, task, or employee needs. The EHS Virtual Manual provides supplementary written materials
 many EHS-related topics.

 Red font in the center column indicates that a formal training is available from EHS. Blue font indicates that the training is conducted by
 an entity external to UNL (generally because regulations require an “authorized” trainer). Green font indicates that the supervisor or
 designee generally conducts the training, but EHS is available to provide assistance as necessary. In all cases, EHS general training must be
 supplemented with job/task specific training by the supervisor or designee.

 *Regardless of the frequency listed, re-training is always required when: new hazards are introduced; procedure, process, or equipment
 changes render previous training incomplete or obsolete; observation indicates that the employee has not retained the requisite skill or
 knowledge from previous training efforts.
